About the course
Even if the computers get faster and faster, there is a need to harness the processing power and get more work done in a limited amount of time. This is especially true for computational problems. The course discusses how you can write code that makes optimal use of your computer. Of equal importance is to write well structured, portable code based on standards, and how to exploit parallelism in modern multi core computers. The programming language used in the course is C, and an introduction to C or C++ is part of the course.
